WoW! This is dreamy!!! My FI and I love this look!!!
we looked at the website with the aqua beaded curtain, but how many would you need to buy?
Has anyone seen it cheaper elsewhere? $70 is kinda pricey. thx!

that website has "faux" capiz shells in white which I think would be nice, (and cheaper).

bsf, we ended up buying 2. We're gonna keep 1 and give the other to FI's brother, but yeah, they are pricey. Maybe you should contact the wedding coordinator at your site & ask how wide the chuppah is & whether they'd be willing to attach something like this to the back of it.

 

Not sure if anyone is using yellow/orange in their wedding colors, but I found this one for $27

here's another option for $38

If anyone's interesting in making their own, you can buy the shells & then use fishing line to string them together. This seller on ebay has a bunch of capiz shells for sale; these ones have the holes pre-drilled:

Thank you Wendy! They are cheaper.

 

***If I wanted to mix the colors, could I remove some strands to mix the colors?

so that its like aqua, white, aqua, white, etc..

This way, I dont have to go all white or all aqua. If not, I am not sure which color to choose! lol

 

thx again guys!

LOVE the idea of using capiz shells! We thought about using orchid garland to hang on the back of the chuppah and got a quote from a real touch florist...and the quote was over $500 for 15 strands!!! I could never justify that and I think the capiz might even be prettier!

I wonder if you could remove the strands from the wooden bar and have the resort hang them individually. It might be easier to transport that way but I'm not sure if it's practical.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
